to really change the way washington works? >> i think a lot of it will be the tone that he and the republican leadership set coming out of this. i think there is clearly the possibility of change. i think that on the president's side and those of us that have been supportive and the democratic side, it is not a day of "i told you so" or gloating, because there was at a lot risk here. we'll dealt everything in this election from voter suppression to gay rights to women rights, so in many ways, we can exhale and say, we didn't go backwards. now how do we put our best foot forward to go forward and appeal to the republicans that we need to have some common ground without compromising our principles. that's going to be a delicate balance. i think romney's statement last night was positive and obviously i'm not one that has given him a lot of commendations but he said what needed to be said last night that i didn't think he would and we'll see where it goes. i think that the president and what he said and the tone he set is where those of us that are supportive are going to have

and actualization on the party side? >> no doubt about that. there has to be. lookf washington understand the history of, you know, the change that republicans have agreed to in the past that has notby the left. and so that is the s that is the suspicion that underlines everything that they legislatively and i'm talking more in terms of the party itself and who is in the republican party. >> in one sense they're two separate things but in the other same thing because a lott party piece, got those tea party activists -- i helpedinto congress. they got there on the principled argument, you know i'm proud of that fact on the principled argument -- >> a lot of facial expressions from the right. >> they got there on the principled arguments they wanted to do something about controlling government spending. so that was principled argument. now a lotd since that. >> they also happ tea partiers and conservatives in congress have put forward some of the most draconian legislation a social policy that cost them the election in many ways. john your skep enthus to point out one

analyst and mother jones washington bureau chief, david corn. the bitter partisan marathon election is over, but what of the bitter partisan marathon gridlock in washington? there are glimmers of hope that lawmakers are prepared to follow advice offered by both presidential candidates. >> our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. >> and in the coming weeks and months i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> maybe not initially, as "the new york times" reports, after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senator republican leader, mitch mcconnell but was told they were asleep. >> wake them up, for goodness sake. >> he is the president. >> wake him up. >> yesterday, yesterday, senate majority leader harry reid struck a tone of cautious optimism. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's bettor work together. i want to work together but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. >> hours later there was some reason for hope. th

, sanctions on iran, sanctions on north korea. you're not in the daily ma maelstrom in washington, d.c. the information that the intelligence community provided her at the time, but that intelligence changes. so i think the president is right, to back his people. secondly, to say that ambassador rice was deceptive is wrong. she is reading from pieces of paper that you get every morning from either a briefer or the intelligence community and that's what she had when she went on those news shows. but to suggest that she is trying to be deceptive is just not the case. she is a very good ambassador. >> i think the issue there is that that line of argument almost cuts both ways and lindsey graham brought that up. if she isn't the person to be talking substantive about this, just reading briefings and not the qualified person on benghazi why was she put out there. why was susan rice the person delivering the administration's message when it probably should have been the secretary of state? >> well, i think if it were the secretary of state or whomever, both of them would have been reading

next year. >> so she thinks what? >> there is wealth protection lobby in washington. and he's part of norquist and it's powerful. but i think we're at a point in time where it might be a little bit out of step with its own constituents. i covered campaign finance last year. i spent the whole year talking to millionaires and billionaires. and i, too, on the other side of the aisle, did not talk to one, including david koch who said, sure, i could see some higher taxes on me in exchange for a bunch of compromise. the mathematical truth is, anti-tax republicans could come out of this with a super-sweet deal on spending, huge spending cuts for historically very small tax increases on a small number of americans. yet they want to do the deal. and that ultimately is going to be very good for their side. >> and a reminder, that's exactly what happened in 1991. that's exactly what happened. is that the republicans, they talked a very, very good game, but they walked out of the white house and also out of that deal with a pretty sweet deal. when you take a look at the overall mechanics. and
